Karen Kriss, lecturer at UNSW Art and Design worked with five artists from south western disability provider The Junction Works (Ltd) on project Dream States for Vivid Sydney 2019. This resulted in several large scale animations projected on the side of the ICC building Sydney and screens throughout Tumbalong park. “Dream States come true” is an exhibition featuring the collage works of  these emerging artists that were utilised as concept art for the Vivid Sydney animations. The works are created through the artists own expressive use of collage as they defined characters and stories utilising a range of imagery from food through to car parts and gaming weaponry.
